Buchanan Wins BMX Supercross World Cup Opener

Caroline Buchanan topped the podium at the first UCI BMX Supercross World Cup race of the season, held April 19 in Manchester, England.

The win was especially sweet for Buchanan because the race was her first after a year away from competition. “There were some nerves, because at the beginning of the year you don’t know who did their homework in the off season, but I came prepared. Staying on the bike was important. Some people got hurt, but that’s why we love BMX, otherwise we’d be running in between some white lines or something,” she told bmxlive.tv. Buchanan plans to race the entire 2014 UCI BMX SX World Cup season.

Maxxis congratulates Caroline Buchanan on her winning return to UCI BMX competition and wishes her the best in her upcoming races.
